  1. How to be on topic?

    Remember when I did my 'ritual' to clean this place up ( blast it ) . That was an exercise (joke ) in staying off topic and being unfocused Thing is ... it worked ! But being unfocused and off topic or continually 'flowing' from topic to topic is a different thing from having only one topic and never getting off that topic . And to get off THIS topic .... ya know , I am glad I dont own run or manage an internet discussion forum . I mean, can you imagine what it would be like if I did ! OMG ! Just ask the people that used to be in my 'ritual magick performance ' group . Jeeze they had stuff with me ! But the two times we actually did a performance , people weher SOOOO chuffed about how well they did and how good it was . The other time, a public performance in Sydney, the last of a sting of rituals , we received a standing ovation ! Peeps said they never seen one so good . Actually, same went for the festivals we used to put on and the events in that I managed . And same for the ' Gods of Olympus ' party we put on a few years back - 'best event ever ' ... ' the best party I have ever been to ' . Trick is ; organisation, preparation, discipline ... then one can 'let go' and allow free expression and creativity WITHIN the parameters .
  2. What made YOU laugh today/tonight ?

    Feeling the cold ? Feeling like Cthulu ?
  3. I know what this is ! Its a work / holiday clock . The left end measures the time when you are on holidays and the right end measures the time while you at your work.
  4. External and internal gears of the Mayan calendar The 'Weather Calendar' has many more wheels .
  5. INFERNO !

    I have seen some bad fires in my time .... but this is insane ! Now I know what they mean by the term 'firestorm ' ; Queensland sunshine coast bushfires from 0 : 35 @ 0 : 14 , the one at 'Bees Nest' is the one I have to watch. The wind change, and continual southerly wind has driven to to the north. Thankfully for me . Its burnt out 66,500 hectares so far ( near 165,000 acres ). As of Tuesday evening there were 79 fires in Queensland and 52 in NSW. No rain predicted for the next two weeks . Satellite image ; North SOUTH wind direction ^ One might think When it hits the lake it will go out . But not always . My sisters house burn down in similar conditions, across a large body of water . They where monitoring it , the fire was way over there across the water, next thing there 'thud' and smoke is coming trough the floor and the downstairs is on fire . Hardly enough time to escape, my nephew was trapped upstairs and had to jump out a window into the neighbours swimming pool . Several houses in the street where destroyed along with a loss of life, that led to an inquiry. A witness told the court ( and later an expert explained ) : The radiant heat from the fire causes volatile oils out of the eucalyptus trees to evaporate, this is heavier than air and driven by the wind pooled over the water surface and filled up the basin of the lake , blown embers can ignite it and a flash burn can travel across the water . The witness saw a comet like fireball, race across the lake, with a " jet exhaust out the back and a pressure wave in front of it " and it hit my sisters house underneath where it is exposed , as it was built on piers on a steep hill.
  6. Isnt it a rule not to quote someone via the quote box and change their words in that quote box ? He does that .
  7. How to be on topic?

    And thank you Everything ! Thank you for just then breaking a major rule that I can report you for Did you think I would not notice that you quoted me and then interfered with my quote and substituted your own words ? These are the sort of dishonest tactics that come with Mr Love everything for evermore ? Hmmmmmmm ?

    " You have always known this' Reminds me of the guy that gave dodgy didgeridoo lessons . Someone I know paid him $50 to learn to play . Didge guru took him into his 'spiritual yurt ' sat down and played for a bit, handed the 'learner' the didge and said " You have always known how to play, its just a matter of remembering . " And walked out - that was the $50 lesson.
  9. I guessed you where going to do something like that . ........ again .
  10. INFERNO !

    The little rain we had is gone. It didnt get the fire. The fire is still spreading my way along the north side escarpment of the valley spotting east . Neighbours just rang and asked me where I was going tonight ??? According to them its an evacuation. Asking the source it was some mothers at the local school . Might be right, I will take my advice from the fire service and myself thanks. I would be more nervous if I had kids tough. Its about 15 km away now and hopped a few ridges in the last day . Its still coded blue , yellow means leave now . Its listed as 'being controlled' yet is spreading towards inhabited areas. ? Tomorrow is hotter and winds are in the least favourable direction . I have stuff in a car in town, I might move my motorcycle there tomorrow. And pack the other car for a quick getaway before I go to sleep , just in case . Other spots are red and places have flared up again or new ones started . The news is all a buzz as some are 'near' Sydney. So I suppose efforts will be focused there and everywhere else . Unfortunately some more fire fighters have been injured
  11. What made YOU laugh today/tonight ?

    WAIT! How come no one, so far, has done mix and match ; dark hair, blonde man bun, or reverse ? My God ! have I thought up something that does not already exist on the internet ?

    śhrī-bhagavān uvācha kālo ’smi loka-kṣhaya-kṛit pravṛiddho lokān samāhartum iha pravṛittaḥ ṛite ’pi tvāṁ na bhaviṣhyanti sarve ye ’vasthitāḥ pratyanīkeṣhu yodhāḥ Aside from this , yes , I have drunk the Sun from the chalice of life .
  14. How to be on topic?

    If only you would let go of 'it' . There is another meaning of 'it' for you .

    It is a huge intergalactic space turtle . Of course . What else could it be ? Now , off you go and follow it .
  16. How to be on topic?

    Got the flu but cant walk or go outside ? High on your own self imposed new age guruness .
  17. How to be on topic?

    I'll own my hostility . Fuck off Everything ! Or face a shit storm of reporting . I've lapped the Sun more than a few times and I have seen endless people act similar to this ..... because they can get away with it . Thats why we have 'stick' to deal with people that suck off others who show politeness and considerations .
  18. How to be on topic?

    One must suspect Mr E does not have a life . Imagine how much time it takes , every day , to fill up daobums with the amount of rubbish he has . Its a bit sad really, that someone misses out on life so much . Banning him will probably do him a favour . Maybe then he will take up a hobby or sport, or take a walk outside ?
  19. I heard a very ancient Aboriginal woman describe , with great difficulty due to English being used , a similar weather process. Eventually I got her . 'Like orbital gears ? ' but she didnt know what that was. Like the Mayan calendar ? Nope, she didnt know that either. So I drew a simple pic of orbital gears in the dirt with a stick , I put some marks on some of the wheels ' Sometimes, these all line up together ? ' She got that, "Yes sometimes , REALLY big drought or rain , lot of heat or cold ." Then she added " I only know about 6 of these inside each other , old people taught me , they got heaps more , all inside each other , turning . Now, we lost a lot of that . "

    Dude ! Now even Nintendao is confused by you and not approving . Thats rock bottom .
  21. How to be on topic?

    Then do the opposite of what he said . Unless you just intend to be 'difficult'
  22. How to be on topic?

    It means not letting your mind be destracted by any passing thought or influence and then following it. regardless of the subject at hand, the object of attention or focus . It is a quality of the developed mind and spirit , without it you will get no where and never come to resolve that can be implemented practically to your advantage . Constantly being off topic, like you are, is squarking like a parrot with no consideration for others or no ability to discern what the hell us going on, except the expressions of one's own ego and triggered synapses. .... and dont play dumb about it ! Unless you really do not get it and have some type of serious personality and communication defect ,
  23. I think you need to piss off out of this thread . -------------- I was going to bring this up before, now seems like a good time . Regarding early human societies habitations , a while back I looked into the Arctic . I was conversing with an Indian chap about the book 'Arctic Home of the Vedas'. I was surprised to see that people lived so far north, so long ago . Most of these ^ go back to the Ice Age but before that, during the Eemian Interglacial some human groups spread into areas WAY before the ice age , but it is said that these lines of people died out ; Morocco , Arabia, and near the Arctic Circle in Siberia .
